o< All The Npws From Surrounding T.owns. >o
Mr. Harry Perrine has entered salt
for ejectment againet the Jersey Cen
tral Traotion Company. They were
a nuisance to him. It is said they or
dered hi* workmen to Ret ont of their
war when they were forking for him.
He gave them the tight of way on
a road through gome property, but it
leads aronnd and passes the cemetery.
In the estimation of some, all that 1
the trolley company have been figuring
on wa? to join the M. & S. trolley
road and get the right of wa> to the
bridge, and as for the interest of
people and property holders that' they
oared not for. The patties think that
the borongh ought to receive some
benefit from it.
That idea tallies with' what the
Hon. J. Montgomery said regarding
the M. & 8. Traotion Company, that
if the Jersey Central went aronnd the
borongh tbe'M. & S. wouldn't think
of running throught he borough'either,
but would pull up their tracks, as the
little traffio wouldn't count {and they
wouldn't care for that. The position
Mr. Perrine has taken regarding the
right of way through his property,
will not allow the comt>any to come
down Broadway as proposed by them
, in their application, even if the ooun
^ oil grants the franohise for that route
and they will be foroed to go past the
cemetery or outside of the borough.
There are a number of < people as
well as some of the oounoilmen. who
think that is only a bluff, but the
Hon. John M. is very earnest in his
opinion that there is no bluff and that
the company means just what it savs.
If the council grants the franchise, as
one oounoilman says they will, they
are perfectly safe in so doing as Mr.
Perrine oannot be bought and he
places a great obstacle in the way. Is
there another bluff on the other side
of the house? Several of the conn oil
men are greatly opposed to the .route
as laid down in this last application
and yet it is said they will grant it.
It wonld appear that a great deal can
be read between the lines. One party
may be as good at bluffing ? as they
think the other party is.
Plants in the cemetery show the
effect of the dronght that prevailed
before the ruiny weather set in, bat
some of the plots look pretty notwith
standing. The oare taker had been
nsing the grass mower to good effedt
on a nnmber of the plots and they
were quite a contrast to those that
had not been mowed. One grave in
the cemetery, in a plot always oare
fnlly tended, had pansies on either
side of it in full bloom and some kind
hand bad placed a bouquet of flowers
on it, while another had placed a pot
containing a plant. A oard was tied
on the plant with a narrow white
ribbon, bnt the rain had effaced the
name of the dunor. This will be read
by one who loved to pnt flowers on
her darlings grave, bnt who is far
away from it now and too ill to come
to it, and Bhe will be pleased to learto
that it is not negleoted by her friend*.
She wrote such a pretty little letter to
me, saving ' ' We are waiting for the
L News, " we read your items and the
one yon wrote abont the oemetery
went right home, etc. " 1 thought It
a good reply to the question asked
me, "What do the people want to go
to the cemetery for?" when talking
trolley. 1
Many people complain of pansies
dying after having bloomed a while
in the early part of the season. A
certain magazine states that it is a
good plan to out off the tops of pansies
this month, July, and they will sprout
5 anew and blossom as formerly and
even better. It will be a great satis
faction for many, if this is oorreot
and it is worth trying, for pansy lovers
dislike to see their favorites die.
The pansies in G. Straub's garden,
on the Heights, are a sight. They are
a mass of bloom and the leaves are
almost hidden beneath the lovely

Daniel Coyne Will be Arraigned before
Juetloe Mason.
Daniel Ooyne, a resident of South
Amboy, and for a number of years
employed by the P. R. R. oompany,
is said to have been for several years
periodically demented, and during
the periods of hallucination is said to
imagine that he is the owner of a
number of dwellings in the vioinity
of his home.
Thursday, as Mr. Joseph Lykes and
a carpenter he had employed to do
some repairs, were working on a
house reoentlr purohased by him,
Ooyne made an assault upon them
with a club. They succeeded in
pacifying'him, but upon his appearing
upon the soene in the same manner
Friday and actually oarrvinar away
some of Lykes' lumber and threaten
ing him. Lykes, being an aged man,
and really being afraid of receiving
some bodily harm, made complaint to
Justioe Mason who i<sued a warrant
for Ooyne that his sanity might be
inquired into with the view of having
him oared for as the authorities might
deem proper.

been labor controversies and weather
conditions, but each woek has brought

Railway traffic is heavy, earnings
thus far reported for July exceeding .

of 1001 by 10.2 per cent. Extensive
preparations are being made to move
the crops, and it is hoped that no block

doubt as to whether adequate motive
power can be secured. Retail trade in
seasonable merchandise Is fully up to
the average, and there is less than the
